I... really haven't been doing much. Except trying to find things to buy, of course, but even that's failed to give me enough to write entries. So, um, something. Maybe I'll even make those ten or so request icons that haven't been done yet; I even have ideas for two of them. Also, I think there was something about dragons.

On the other hand, I feel oddly organised for knowing exactly what my New Year's Day post is going to be. And no, I'm not telling you what it is before then.

Also, there may be mockery of episode 1 of Numb3rs: the Masquerade when I get around to writing it - after all, I have a long list of clichés that were all somehow packed into 40 minutes of TV - but that may take a while yet; both of my drafts have come up as little more than scatterbrained slush, and I'd like it to at least be readable.

So, in the place of actual content (and nicked from everywhere), I have a D&D meme.

I Am A: Chaotic Good Elf Bard (3rd Level)

Ability Scores:

Chaotic Good A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. Chaotic good is the best alignment you can be because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. However, chaotic good can be a dangerous alignment because it disrupts the order of society and punishes those who do well for themselves.

Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma score allows a bard to cast high-level spells.

[Poll #1106977]

Coming shortly: a completely different poll about a completely different game.

I can't be bothered doing the whole poll, but Rogue Modron for reals.

But I like Tieflings! Woe.

I was all prepared to say Tiefling until I saw a rogue Modron option. And I loves me some rogue Modrons.

And if I'd added an option for three ratatosks standing on each other's shoulders and wearing a robe, a mask, and some magic rings?

Should I, just.

(My comments in this thread are to be read as being in a mirthful, mock-argumentative tone.)

(I presumed as much.)

Oh really?

(Better safe than stampeded by dramallamas. :D)

Date: 2007-12-19 12:45 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] goblinpaladin.livejournal.com

Yes, really.


(Dramallama should totally be a D&D creature. "Dramallamas" would be a great metal-geek band name.

Also, icon crafted from pure win.)

Ah, but it seems there's a horrid lack of way; almost, some would say, none.


(Or "Drämällämäs", for great metal-umlaut justice.

Also, thanks!)

*blinks* With the clicking and the thing; not that difficult to find.

(With their opening track, "They set us up the Þ".)

Do you blink at me, sir?</montague>

(Released as an EP with "Invisble ð", "Møøse Bites" and "Ümläüt Shörtägë")

(Now I wish this EP existed. It would be awesome.)

(Also, speaking of nerdy music, would not Carcerian Jazz be freaking awesome?)

Date: 2007-12-19 01:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] active-apathy.livejournal.com
(Ooh, yes. They could tour with Trichocentrum.)

(Perhaps. Or! Or a Rilmani band!)

(If I had any music-composing abilities, I would totally write some of those songs.)

(Oooh, and they would have a rivalry with a Bladeling punk group.)

From: [identity profile] active-apathy.livejournal.com
(And since there's two bands, the canny fans are off looking for the third. Which probably involves 'loths.)

Date: 2007-12-19 01:34 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] goblinpaladin.livejournal.com
(I can see the 'loths as selling tickets to the wrong band to each group of fans...)

('loth scalpers outside the Quadrone box office, leading to a very dismayed Quinton, while the Xaositects switch the signs.)

(Open mic nights would be a struggle between Death-of-Names chanting the Dead Book and Signers...)

Date: 2007-12-19 01:46 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] active-apathy.livejournal.com
(With Rule-of-Threes as MC?)

Date: 2007-12-19 01:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] goblinpaladin.livejournal.com
(Oh, for sure. Who else? Ylem would make a fantastic DJ, incidentally.)

Date: 2007-12-19 01:56 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] active-apathy.livejournal.com
(Unity-of-Rings! It'd be the open mic night that never ends, so it'd have to be in the Astral somewhere; Pitiless, perhaps?)

Date: 2007-12-19 02:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] goblinpaladin.livejournal.com
(I would also love to see some rogue modron math-rock. Quadrone, Quadrone and Quadrone: 1, 2, 3, 4.)

(The mimir is playin' up: Pitiless?)

Date: 2007-12-19 02:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] active-apathy.livejournal.com
(The Prison of the Pitiless; it's a Sinker thingy in the Astral, where they wait and watch to see if things ever decay there.)

(Oh, right. It's not exactly Unity's scene, is it?)

Date: 2007-12-19 02:36 pm (UTC)

(Not quite, no.)
